Aeroflot Russian Airlines (Moscow) on March 21 put into service its new Sukhoi Superjet 100-95B RA-89047 (msn 95047) on the Moscow (Sheremetyevo) – Minsk route. The pictured new SSJ100 carries a special emblem celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the Russian victory in World War II. The airline issued this statement and photos:

An Aeroflot Sukhoi Superjet 100 with livery commemorating the 70th Anniversary of the Victory in the Second World War on Saturday (March 21) completed its first flight on the Moscow-Minsk-Moscow route.

The aircraft, the newest SSJ-100 in Aeroflot’s fleet, is named after Alexander Gruzdin, one of the Soviet Union’s leading wartime pilots. Minsk was chosen as the destination for the first flight because of its particular symbolism and importance in the Victory.

All of Aeroflot’s Russian-built planes will be emblazoned with the Victory livery as part of the Company’s commemorations of this landmark date. The key elements of the design are a white dove on a blue background and a ribbon of the Order of St George.

Aeroflot is preparing an extensive slate of events to mark the Anniversary. The centrepiece is the annual programme of free tickets for military veterans and those injured during the Great Patriotic War, as well as those accompanying them, on routes to cities that played a key role during the War from 3-12 May. Citizens of other former Soviet countries will also be eligible. This year Aeroflot will for the first time cover all travel costs including tickets and taxes, while the cap on the total number of tickets available has also been lifted. The programme covers flights operated under the SU code by Aeroflot Group on domestic routes and flights to selected destinations across Europe and the CIS.

Aeroflot was the first Russian airline to introduce free tickets for war veterans as part of the Victory Day celebrations. In 2014 Aeroflot carried about 3,600 passengers under the programme, which has benefited about 50,000 passengers in its 15-year history.

Aeroflot also plans to create a section of its website dedicated to the wartime contribution of civil aviation. The Aeroflot Museum at Sheremetyevo International Airport will also host an exhibition entitled «The Unknown Soldier» to showcase materials from the family archives of Aeroflot employees. The airline will also plant a number of trees along the Aeroflot Walk of Fame.

Aeroflot suspends the Moscow-Kharkiv and Moscow-Dnepropetrovsk routes

Aeroflot Russian Airlines (Moscow-Sheremetyevo) has suspended the Moscow-Kharkiv and Moscow-Dnepropetrovsk routes following actions by the Ukraine government. Both cities are located in the Ukraine. The Russian airline issued this statement:

Ukraine’s State Aviation Administration without giving a reason has banned Russian airlines flights on the route Moscow – Kharkiv and Moscow – Dnepropetrovsk. The affected airlines are Aeroflot, Transaero, UTair, UTair-Ukraine and Dniproavia. Thus the permission to perform operations on these routes issued by Ukraine’s State Aviation Administration on October 24, 2014 and November 17, 2014 has been withdrawn.

Due to this fact Aeroflot was forced to cancel a previously scheduled winter season 2014/15 flights:

SU1810/1811 and SU1838/1839 Sheremetyevo – Kharkiv – Sheremetyevo;
SU1816/1817 Sheremetyevo – Dnepropetrovsk – Sheremetyevo.

Passengers of canceled flights are able to return their tickets without penalties as well as to reroute for Aeroflot flights to/from Kiev.
